A Band of Voters

About A Band of Voters

A Band of Voters (ABOV) is a diverse non-profit organization that turns out student voters at large community colleges and public universities through a unique program that changes the culture of voting through celebration, education and voting with friends. 

ABOV is currently working to help students turnout to vote in the midterms through a Fellowship at 11 campuses in Southern California and several out of state. Our focus is on Minority serving institutions and underserved communities. Our program, #Party4OurPower, supports student leaders as they organize large events to help build the political power of their generation through voting and other forms of Civic Empowerment.

In addition, our work is the first step in implementing the historic legislation ABOV and our Student Advisory board passed, AB963: The Student Civic and Voter Empowerment Act,  the first student voting rights law of its kind. Our board included students from the NAACP YC and March for Our Lives, who were the leaders of the effort. We are working directly with the Secretary of State’s Office and the Student Senate for the California Community Colleges to ensure the law is implemented.
